so you're scared to start a business I mean I get it how do you know that the idea that you have is even a good one how do you know that there are going to be customers out there that will buy your product or service or that there aren't already tons of businesses doing the exact same idea that you have how do you know you can even afford to start this business and you don't even know what to do first second third or at all for that matter well I call why in this video I'm going to break down why and at the end I'm going to give you a free gift to help you overcome all of those ridiculous fears that I just named are you ready then let's get to work [Music] [Music] so let's start by addressing that first question that has you scared to start this amazing business how do you know that you won't fail well let me ask you have you always avoided things in your life that didn't come with a will not fail guarantee well if you have then you're absolutely right you should be scared and Entrepreneurship is probably not for you but if you haven't let's get this out in the open you will fail and when you're a business owner those failures are what make you successful and you will learn from those failures you will get up and you will keep going there are so many times in my entrepreneurial Journey that I have what I would like to call come across learning lessons because I refuse to call them failures that very word is negative and puts it out into the universe right learning lessons are going to be vital and critical to your entrepreneurial Journey you're going to try things you're going to test things you're going to put things out there and ideas that you have and you're going to learn very quickly if you happen to have made a mistake the key is learning from that mistake making the adjustment and moving forward to not making that same mistake again failure is not an option when it's yours who is out there telling you that you have failed other than yourself no one else knows your thought process no one else knows your goals no one else knows what you see as your ideal entrepreneurial Journey but you and only you can tell yourself whether or not you've actually begun to fail think of it this way the only real way that you can fail as an entrepreneur is to First not do anything with those dreams and that creative streak and that goal that you have or not even attempt to try it I mean in actuality you can't fail if you don't do it but not doing it in itself is failure your business will only fail if you give up if when you make those mistakes you do not move on from those mistakes and learn from them and Implement them into your business you have the likelihood of failing and I would say exactly zero and even if you did it's okay because in other aspects of your life where you have perceived that you have failed you have been able to pick yourself up get back on that bike and keep on writing and that is exactly what you will do with this entrepreneurial dream do not allow your fear of what you might categorize as failure because remember it's all up to you to decide what failure looks like in your entrepreneurial Journey you will be able to keep moving and keep moving forward if you don't fail in entrepreneurship multiple times you are not moving forward so don't let this entire concept or idea of failing at this business stop you from actually moving in the right direction and fulfilling that dream entrepreneurship comes with so many advantages and pluses way more than minuses and a big part of that journey is trying things using your creative juices to move forward to drive your own freedom of income of choice of decision making and of time and honestly I can tell you that in my entrepreneurial journey I have failed never because I've been doing this for 25 years I'm now coaching other entrepreneurs on how to actually do this and that in itself shows the success now don't get me wrong I've dissolved businesses I've changed things made mistakes that have cost me a lot of money but I've learned from them to the point where now I'm able to move forward with any idea without that fear so let's cut the bull all right fear of failure is not an option and if that in itself is stopping you from moving forward as an entrepreneur then you have got to get your mind all the way together because failure is really truly what you make of it so let's talk about the next reason why you're scared to start this business and that is you don't really know what to do or how to do it well this one is easy I call because you will learn there is so much information out there that will Aid you and assist you in starting this business heck I mean look around that's why I'm here that's what I do why I do what I do that's why there is CPTV because at your stage I was in the same boat I was afraid to actually get started because in my mind I couldn't conceive of exactly what the steps were to do and so I was afraid to just kind of go out there and try but over the course of starting and growing multiple businesses I have learned what those steps are and that's why I teach the steps in the order that I teach them for you so that you are not alone so that you do have someone holding your hand and taking that Leap of Faith with you that's all it is Miles a leap of faith that's my mission that's my why so I don't want to hear you say well I don't want to start this business because I don't know how I don't know what I should do first because there are so many people out there who are willing to help to coach and to teach you exactly what to do you just have to be diligent enough and open enough to find them and a little self-shaming plug here to keep coming back to CPTV and working with folks just like me that will guide you along that Journey so remove that ridiculous fear because it ain't got no weight over here my love so if you agree with me so far do me a favor smash that like button and while you're down there go ahead and subscribe and hit that Bell so that you can keep coming back and getting the goods from CP every single Tuesday now let's get into number three fear because this one is a goodie now I've also heard that you are afraid to start the this business and absolutely Running Scared because you aren't sure if your business idea is a good one and you believe that the market is already saturated with so much competition that there's no way you can be successful again I'm gonna go with let me give you some perspective your business idea will be just that an idea [Music] which means you have to test it you have to put it out there you have to look at your results and analyze the data and you have to decide what tweaks you need to make in that business idea or product or service in order to move forward no one is telling you that the initial idea that you come up with is going to be the final idea that you end up doing trust me I haven't been there your audience the market people who are willing to buy your idea will let you know if the idea is a good one it's not your decision to make it is theirs so the idea that you have shouldn't stop you from moving forward moving forward in itself will help you solidify that idea there is a huge part of starting a business that involves testing your idea testing your product giving it away for free allowing people to take advantage of it and give you their feedback and their opinion there is a big part of when you are starting a business that you will be in beta mode or testing mode code in order for you to perfect your concept and continue to Blossom and be creative with additional ideas so that you can grow being an entrepreneur and having your own business fills that basic need that you have to make your own decisions But ultimately the audience the market and people buying from you will tell you if your idea is a good one if you never give them the idea because you're too scared to actually start this business you're never going to know if it's a good idea so let's not guess and let's not assume that your idea isn't a good one let's move forward with what that idea is Let's test it let's try it let's get some feedback and then let's tweak and move forward because not moving forward with your idea is the only way that I can tell you that you will not succeed now let's address this fear of not having enough money and not having enough time to actually start your your business seriously well let me tell you first of all let's talk about this money thing yes it is going to be a cost for you to start this business but you can always start this business as a side hustle now I actually recommend that that's what you do that's what I did in my very first business I began doing it on the side because like I said in the very beginning of starting your business there's going to be some testing and betaing and seeing if your ideas can take hold and if people are actually interested and the best way to do that is as a side hustle while you're still employed while you are still driving Revenue into your business so that you can get a real true sense of how big this thing can actually be eventually as you continue to do it as a side hustle you will begin to drive enough Revenue where your side hustle will begin to replace that full-time hustle and even in the beginning if you haven't decided now I'm making enough enough money in order to be able to leave my job as long as you know and you can see the potential of that money growing then you can feel safe and comfortable in that I don't have enough money to start this business now there's two aspects of not having enough money that you might be thinking of one is personally not having enough money in order to pay your bills and the second is not having enough money to actually get the business started and I actually write did a whole another video on how to kind of accumulate that first ten thousand dollars in order to start your your business so I'm going to go ahead and link to that video here because that gives you a clue on how you can begin to build the financial stability that you need to invest in your business and the side hustle idea that I just came up with is a perfect way to address your concern about not making enough money personally it is okay to start this business idea as a side hustle that doesn't mean that you shouldn't set it up properly that doesn't mean that you shouldn't officially register it that doesn't mean that you shouldn't set the strong Foundation that you need in order to really see it grow it does mean however that you don't have to jump in head first without knowing that you have some type of cushion because I get it not having any personal income to pay your bills is extremely stressful and in most instances in our lives it is not possible to do so I totally recommend start this business as a side hustle do it on the side and then you'll have the time and money once you see how things are going in order to make the decision about whether or not you drop down to a part-time role or whether or not you are ready to jump into that business full-time because it can support you now let's address this whole time thing because I've already talked about starting it as a side hustle and the number one response I get that I call on as well is I don't have enough time to actually do a business as a side hustle I don't have enough time to do this business because my life is all crazy and hectic and I'm going to ask you what I have asked you and many other zptv episode do you control your time or does your time control you come on Claire answer the question answer the question Claire because if your time controls you then I absolutely agree girl you are not going to have enough time to start this business but if you make the determination that you are going to begin to implement the right time management techniques to train yourself on how to prioritize to prioritize your business even sometimes over your social life and what do I mean about that I mean when I was first starting my business because it was a side hustle there were things that I had to sacrifice from a Time perspective you're right not everything can be fit in there are some things in life that you have to do and that you have to make the time for work you know family children sleeping eating all that kind of good stuff but there are other things that we know we do to waste time and also that are more luxurious in giving of our time like you know happy hours or girls night outs or a social life in essence if you make the commitment to sacrifice some of those more luxurious time suckers that I just mentioned and focus in on developing the right time management tools and techniques and skills you will have enough time to dedicate to starting your business let me give it to you this way I know that you have had positions and you have had jobs in the past where you have given way more time to building someone else's dream all I'm saying is don't make excuses as to why you don't have enough time to build your own dream right if you can give someone else time then you can give it to yourself believe you me that is where starting a business becomes a priority I know someone who I've actually been coaching who has enough time to have a full-time job and add on a couple part-time jobs but doesn't have enough time to actually start her business and it didn't make any sense to me it's almost ridiculous because if she put that same amount of time in her two extra part-time jobs into her business as she does those two part-time jobs building and growing someone else's business she would see that the income that she could generate from that business would far outweigh what she's making on an hourly basis working at a restaurant or working as a barista right so it's all about your mindset and you making the commitment to take control of your time be strategic be specific incorporate some of the tips and tools that I can provide to you in this video I'm going to go ahead and link to about how to manage your time how to become the master of your time because once you implement those things this whole time fear I'm scared to start a business thing will go out the window and you will be on the right path to experiencing all of the joys of entrepreneurial Freedom that you so deserve and desire now let's talk about this idea that your friends and family are going to think that you are crazy and that's why you're scared to start this business oh oh you crazy I am I agree having your family on board is absolutely critical you will need support and they will need to be prepared for this journey I understand that is why it is very very important for you to come up with a full-fledged Plan before you start just discussing this concept and this idea with your family family typically is only telling you that you can't do it or thinking that you're crazy because they don't have a very clear picture a completely thought out picture of what it is that you are attempting to do oftentimes that's our bad we're the ones that just kind of throw ideas out there with no game plan no real structure no real strategy and no real effective way to communicate what our thoughts are so I'm going to challenge you before you start sharing and just throwing out this brainstorming activity that you're doing to your family sit down map it out think it through do your research be prepared and be serious because if you've got the family that I know you have and you sit down with them and very strategically say here's my game plan this is what I want for us this is our Dream this is how it's going to help us and you really work on that sales pitch for that business they are not going to think they need to protect you thus telling you that you are crazy because that's what that's all about right protecting you from your own craziness let me tell you if you approach them like a crazy person they're gonna believe that you're a crazy person but if you approach them as a professional CEO driven CEO mindset on the verge of becoming a fabulous entrepreneur then they will treat you as such so that eradicates that whole family thinking you're crazy thing and if it doesn't then just keep in mind whoever that family member is that still thinks you're crazy even after you've presented them with a well thought out well-presented good case then you just need to identify that that family member is a family member that you don't need to share everything about your business dreams with because they're just not going to be supportive we all have those family members we all have those ones who feel like it is their personal goal and mission in life to make sure that they keep you in realistic world I have plenty of them and the same family members change their tune when I was able to pay for a vacation for them or buy them a new roof for their house okay hey I'm on vacation every single day cause I love my occupation now as far as your friends are concerned [Music] I love that song am I showing my age I think I do anyway as far as your friends are concerned we all have those friends we already know who they are you know the friends who are a little bit more hater than they are a friend and for whatever reason we keep them in our lives and we maintain their friendship maybe it's because we've grown up with them our entire lives or they're more like cousins are you my cousin then they are friends whatever the situation is we have those friends we know who they are and I need to tell you that those are the friends that you do not need to share things with especially if they are going to bring you down it's okay that they don't know everything about what's going on with you it's okay that they aren't a part of that dream it's okay that you can't share this particular aspect of your life with them because what you don't need is anybody feeding into that fear that's going to stop you from pursuing your goals and your dreams now we also have those friends that will push you that will cheer for you that will support you that will give you ideas and that will be that ride or die that we all need right that my best friend she a real bad exactly those are the friends that I want you to focus on those are the friends that I want you to share and to vent with though those are the friends that I want you to make sure they are completely involved with what your mindset is around starting this business because those are the friends who are not only going to walk with you and ride the bus with you but also really truly appreciate when you're on the back of a limo because your business is booming okay those are the friends I want you to focus on not everybody is going to be on board and that's okay that should not stop you from pursuing your entrepreneurial journey and it shouldn't keep you in a state of constant fear unless you want to use that as an excuse and if that's the case then I'm going to have to bring Asher into this discussion oh you don't know who Asher is hmm well Asher hasn't been on the CPTV sets in a while but this is Asher and when you see Asher it means Asher as referred to in the Urban Dictionary as Asher syndrome means the distinct inability to get your together exactly I need you to get your together not everybody is going to be on your side and that's okay you need to strategically think through the list of family and friends who will be and then strategically decide to only involve them in this process of starting a business with you because ultimately you need to surround yourself with positive thoughts with positive support and with a support system that will really help you flourish and overcome this ridiculous fear that we've been talking about now I know I promised you a free gift and now I'm going to give it to you because with everything that I just said everything that I just called on I get it it's harder to do than it is to say or what it's easier said than done or you know whatever it is but ultimately I understand it's a mindset and mindset is one of those things that is very difficult to overcome so I'm going to share with you my free overcoming fears and affirmation worksheet I use it every single day have always use it especially when I'm about to Embark upon a day that really has me shook I love it and I want to give it to you you can grab it in the links down below or also at the link that's across the bottom of the screen right now because that worksheet is critical it is awesome and I'm giving it to you for free so make sure that you grab it because 90 of being successful in entrepreneurship is about mindset and if your mindset isn't in the right place you're not going to have the success regardless of what your pre-fear anticipatory anxiety what you're having anticipatory anxiety about you need to make sure that your mind is in the right place look it is perfectly normal to be scared everything worth going after should make you feel a little bit of anxiety that's what makes it so worth it but if you allow that fear to paralyze you to stop you from moving forward and most importantly from experiencing the decision making the financial the time and ultimately the desire Freedom that entrepreneurship gives you then that's your bad that's on you because all of the excuses that we talked about today are just that excuses and I've just given you real true Goods on how to overcome those excuses and why they are BS so moving forward please just note that I've been there I understand and let me tell you being on the other side of that fear and having pursued my entrepreneurial Journeys that not even Freddy Krueger y'all could keep me from starting my own business and I hope you won't be able to keep you either until next time my loves have a wonderful week I will see you soon bye-bye [Music] [Music]
